President Obama has declared a major disaster exists in the State of Colorado.
He has ordered federal aid to supplement state and local efforts for the area affected by the Royal Gorge Fire back in June.
Federal funding will now be available for Disaster Unemployment Assistance for those affected in Fremont County. It was also be available for state and local government for emergency work, and repair buildings by the fire.
Hazard mitigation measures will also be covered under the aid.
